- We are having seriously "perfect weather" and a heat wave here in Alaska. Sunny skies, light breeze and temperatures in the upper 70s. Craziness. Matter of fact, early next week we are supposed to see Florida-like temps creeping into the mid-80s. OMG... what am I going to do without AC? We might be visiting the frozen food section of the grocery store or sitting in the car soaking up the AC, for sure!
- The Nanny hunt is in full swing and interviews are lined up. Matter of fact, I had the first one this morning. Now I'm not nervous anymore & I actually feel like I know what I'm doing.
- The 1/2 Marathon is in one week. Things are not looking good at all.
- I had the insane idea this week to take all 3 kids (by myself, because Brian is TDY) to Toys R Us so that the birthday boy could spend some of his birthday money. After 1 hour in the store, we hadn't even gotten past isle 5, we had made 2 "emergency" bathroom trips, Marilyn was walking around the store with a poopy diaper, and there was 1 meltdown near the Dora toys by poopy-pants. Someone tell me what the hell I was thinking doing this... and the kicker was it was close to dinner time so we were all starving. And just so it's clear... every Heck child left the store with something in hand. I'm not that mean.

My "helpers" in the kitchen when I was baking Thomas' cake.
I'm pretty sure they were there for only one reason.
Abby's the only person I know who can pile high the grapes (this is when she had eaten half already) and eat Every. Last. One. Of. Them!
